"With a slew of games out and the reviews mounting up, it's time for another review. Here's one for PlayStation 3 game Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty.
This is the second outing for the spacefaring lombax Ratchet on the PlayStation 3 and despite being classed as a "budget" title (the retail disc sells for less than $35), this game has full-price production values and visuals written all over it.
Being a downloadable title (it's also available on Blu-ray disk), Quest for Booty won't take as long to complete as the much longer R+C: Tools of Destruction - four to five hours - but that's a good thing, really. And it's all done so remarkably well and is wrapped up in the trademark Insomniac humour that you'll enjoy most of it till the very end.
Unlike previous R+C games, where Ratchet jets from planet to planet in his intergalactic quests, most of Quest for Booty takes place on the planet Hoolefar, where you start your search for Clank, who has gone missing.
Armed with a few new skills, Ratchet is joined by mutinous robot pirate Rusty Pete and the decapitated head of Capn' Slag in the search. You'll also run into some familiar faces from Tools of Destruction, and as usual there are plenty of crates around to smash to collect bolts, the game's currency."
